“Perhaps the saddest thing about this hatred directed at white, working-class people by the rich and privileged is that many of the latter are those who loudly proclaim how ‘left-wing’ or ‘progressive’ they are. But, unfortunately, many traditionally left-wing parties have been colonised by a section of the privileged media/political class.”
Our morally superior lords and masters are extraordinarily fond of tendentious comparisons to Nazi Germany. They are as promiscuous with accusations of Nazism as a New England religious hysteric with claims of witchcraft. I think it’s safe to say that most of these accusations are entirely unwarranted.
In the name of historical accuracy – something most of our betters struggle with – I’d like to point out that working-class people were the least likely to vote for the Nazis; Hitler sent his most gifted propagandist – Joseph Goebbels – to be party leader in ‘Red’ Berlin because working-class voters were so resistant to the Nazi message. Even after Hitler became Chancellor, most working-class voters stayed loyal to the KPD (Communists) and SPD (Social Democrats)
Class and wealth are the real sources of privilege in our society.
